6-Day Professional Application Course & Psoas Retreat 2019

January 27, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - February 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

$850.00 – $995.00

Be inspired from the inside out!

Each year I offer my HEALING RETREAT and APPLICATION COURSE for lay persons and professionals. This course is an opportunity to heal your own psoas issues and bring psoas awareness to your personal and professional life.  The Application Course offers those licensed as Somatic Educators, Yoga Instructors, Pilates & Gyrotonic Trainers, Massage Practitioners, Body & Healing Practitioners; as well as Birth & Fitness Coaches, Dance Instructors, Martial Arts Masters, plus all psychology focused professionals, to develop into Psoas Savvy Educators, capable of helping others integrate and resolve psoas related issues. Completing this 30-Hr course is a prerequisite for joining my online Community referral page where people can locate Psoas savvy classes and therapists in their community.

Step away from your dedicated focus to broaden your perspective and experience your bio-intelligent psoas. By doing so, your psoas becomes a guide for self actualization that informs you from deep within your core being.

A healthy psoas is the first step towards functional movement. Having a coherent core not only supports the capacity of core strength but is deeply nourishing for every aspect of your life and creativity; essential components for achieving your professional goals.

Inspire your  life and your specialization. Join me!

Group size: limited to a maximum of 17 participants  (during your stay, family & friends are welcome to join you at the Spa Resort)

Welcome to Core Awareness™

Liz Koch is an international educator and author who seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to re-conceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Liz redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal.

Core Awareness fosters core integrity and self-efficacy as creative and expressive human beings.

Here at Core Awareness you’ll discover new ways of understanding the psoas. In addition to the blogs there is an educationally rich sourcing free for the taking. Explore my videos, articles, podcasts, interviews, FAQ’s and community links and let yourself go wild!
